CONTINUED PROM LAST WEEK.
We'liave seen' ilrr(l Its origin dates
well batklilto 'antlliulty, but tlln Inod
ern organlxallon U of recent date It
w as .reservell fiir'tlie maiter-mlmls of a
tew of our 'brothers, nf genluvtobrcan-
Ize and reilbctj to Rystemaho principles'
ami workings or the Jrder In tho city
of V nshlngton, as late as the mouth of
April A. D 1804., Since then, llko tho
majestic oak, It' Has extended Us branch
es far and wide In every .direction.
Its:inembers areto.he found Jn;, nearly
every btate-pf.thq UiiIoi, and I am in
formed, that' it Is eveil taklbg root In
foreign 'countries.' Certain It is,1 tliat
Its power and influence for good are
felt ovei the globe. Its mission and
destiny have a glorious out-look.
Among Its leading precepts are,
friendship, honor,, ..courage, magnan
imity, betiBNoleice , and. cl'atlty.
Frleild-ililp H'a'p'rUo which we nil' covet,
a natural desire, deeply Implanted In
the. human l.eait. Friendship, has been
,n great, theinw, no less with lai)les fair,
mid gall.tpt knights, than with such
stgt's as Aristotle, Setiaca and Cicero of
tb- olden times; and with -Bacon, Ad
dlsuii and others nearer to our own.
Ilut.ln our time, It seems tlie sentiment'
itself Is nut soardentas when the speak
ing a'nd'.w'ritlng thereon, were muro'in
vogue, and can at this time well bear a
strong Infusion, of the Pythhin sphit.
There are no, doubt times when h will
ease th( heart to, reveal Its emotions of
joy or rtrlef .IntoJa.friendly.bOsnlil; and
to hold counsel and couip.wison of
tliiuiRlit, ni.il to do aiid'ak a. thousand
lhlug4 which seem um-eemly for a matt
himself to do, but which are so appro
priate for tlie deputation of a friend.
Who can estimate ' tlie value of a trim
friend in the hour of joy, or In the d.iy
of adversity? Tlie poet finely pott.'ay
ed the sentiment, wln.n hu wrote,
I lovo tlipfrlend-whoinngiis wllU mc,
When iileusiu-o tleck juy brow;
Hittlleiuer still that friuml must bo,
Wliu wjeps.wjtb uio u sympathy.
SnJi friendship as the puot suggests,
and such n-J that 'wblcti Daiiuin iiuil
Pylhi.ii pruutleiilly exhlblted, Is indeed
rarer tliun 'It should be; but frleniUlilp
like the vaildui specfes ofplants in tho

It was at tills, lime, when the sword oud
cruelty and Injustice reigned supreme,
tnwaids ,the close of tho tenth century,
that the spirit of clilvelry and the Insti
tution of knlgfithpud.aroso to turn back
the tide of oppression, and to plant
In the very midst of barbarism, tho
seeds of the. most noble, rjenerom prin
ciples. It was then that some noble barons,-
filled with charitaUln zeal and
moved with compassion for the, wretch
ness which they saw around ,thetn, com
bined together, uider the solemnity of
religious, sanctions, with tho holy, pur
pose'of protecting the veak from the
oppresslon,nf the powerful, and of de
fending the right cau-o against the
wrung. The spirit and the Institution
spread rapidly.; tteachtry ami hypo
crisy became'detesttble; whllocourtesy,
magnanimity, courage, honor and hos
pitality became the virtues of thu age;
.and the knights who were ever ready to
draw their swords, at whatever odds, In
defence. (if Innocence, received the. ador
.ntlou of the populace and In public
opinion, were exalted even abyve kings
themselves. Tho meed of praise and
esteem gave fresh vigor aud purity ,lo
the cau'se 6f chivalry; and under the in
fluence of Its splrit 'great, aeeds were
'done by the fraternity ot valiant
knights who had' enrolled themselves as
Its' champions, The baron forsook his
castle.-and tho peasant his hut to main
tain tlit? hhnor'ol a family, or preserve
the satredness of a vow; It was this
8entllnent which made the poor serf pa-,
tlcnt'ln his tolls, and serene In his sor
rows; it enabled his master to brave all
physical evils, anUenj'oyft sortof spirit

his master,, and the master to his king.
Though In the practical exemplifications
Of chivalry' there was often much of er
rur, yet Its spirit was based upon the
most generous Impulses of human .na
ture: "To spealc the tiuth, to succor tho.
helpless and opptussed,, and. never to
turn back from an enemy," was tho
first vow of tho aspirant to tho .honors
of chivalry. In ,an age ot' darkness,
and degradation, chivalry developed
the true character of woman, ami, caus
ing her virtues to be appieciated and
honored, made her theequal companion
of niau,' nnd the .object of his devotion.
Says tlie celebrated, historian Hallam,
"The love.of Uud and the ladies" was
.enjoined as a single duty. .In tho lan
guage of another modern, writer, "chi

that was noble and valiant In a warlike
age, it became the highest ohjp.ct of
every yoUng man's ambition one day to

Benevolence and charity aro.also. vir
tues which our Order Inculcates. St.
Paul in his 1st epistle to tho Corinthians
says, "Now abldeth faith, hope, charity,
these three, but the greatest uf these Is
charity" hence of all virtues, let us hot
forget to be charitable. Charity In
Its lull loveliness, Is either the gift'ot
heaven, or tho slow growth ot moral
culture. It is just as various In Its sorts
and intrinsic worth, as coins are, from
tin! lowest to the hlg'hest denominations ;
and eveiy mode in which, this virtue is
exhibited is just its characteristic, .'as tlie
stamp of Us particular value' which is
imparted to coins' ac'curdlug to the'size,
design and niatetla! used. A Jewish
philosopher, has tiuuly Illustrated tho
various degrees, of merit In charity by
cumparing it to a ladder' having eigut
steps. Tho proud pluuacle of the lad
der Is reached be says, by "anticipat
ing charity so s to prevent poverty: as
by assisting the reduced' brother, ejilier
by a gift Or loan or money, or by teach
ing him' a trade or bu-dess, so that he
may dot bu forced to the dreadful alter
native of holding up his hand, fur chari
ty;' and to. this uur Holy Law aiujes
when ,lt Bays, "And if thy 'bru'therbe
waxen poor and rallen lit decay, tfcen
thou slmlt 'support, him; yea, though, ho
be a stranger or a sojourner; that he
may live with thee, this Is the eighth
and highest step,, the summit of chari
